One Wave websites are always on top of the search engines. I wanted this for my company, so I contacted Paul. From concept to design to implementation, Paul and his team did an amazing job. They helped us discover “what we really needed”. The results speak for themselves. Our lead volume is up considerably, and the feedback we have received on our site design has been tremendous. Our clients really like the site (and so do we)!

Paul at One Wave Designs has been working with me on graphic design projects for Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii (BBBSH) since earlier this year. He really stepped up to the plate when we were looking for a company like his to do pro bono work for us. He’s very quick to respond, comes up with great ideas and is always open to feedback, making it easy to work with him. The excellent relationship between a for-profit business like One Wave Designs and a nonprofit like BBBSH is a great example of how organizations can collaborate with each other to improve our communities. We truly appreciate his willingness to give his time, skills and expertise in order to support our efforts.

Flash Shuttle Service

One Wave Design came to our rescue when we needed help designing our logo for our shuttle/tour business. They emailed me a few samples of options to choose from and to say the least we were stoked with the design they came up with. Paul and Evan really educated us a lot about how the SEO presence and how it all works. Very friendly down to earth guys!! Now they are working on cleaning up our website that was handled by other company, once again they have bailed us out.

The value of a company is not just in an initial relationship but in one that continues to listen to us and help us grow our business. Paul and his company have been great to work with and we would recommend them without hesitation. We hope to continue our relationship with him in the years to come!

Paul is awesome to work with. Him and his team created a great website for our business. We’ve had such a large response we’ve had to pause taking on any new clients and now have a waiting list. I highly recommend One Wave Designs.

Are you looking for a great web designer? If so, look no further! I started with One Wave and Paul over 10 years ago. Best decision I could have made! Paul not only designed a beautiful website but was so patient and kind it was amazing. I knew nothing, was afraid of what I would get, how it would help my small business and spending money in this way. Fast forward to 2020…. Paul has been nothing but Fantastic ever since! I recommend him wholeheartedly and without any reservations! Aside from always being helpful, answering my calls/ emails immediately, making minor changes and walking me through many minor issues or something I didn’t understand, he has always been kind and patient and made me feel special. And here I was only a one time client. Paul and his staff will always be tops in my book! Did mention how honest and down to earth he is? I’m sure he had a wonderful, kind and loving family….especially his mother! Many hugs to you, Paul!

Fit-Life Hawaii

Paul is a master of his trade, there is no doubt about that. I came to One Wave Designs after having a miserable experience with another firm on the island. It was a pricey lesson to learn and I wish I had gone to these guys to begin with. To say I’m particular about things is a gross understatement and Paul worked with me very diligently to ensure the site was exactly as I envisioned. You can see it at www.FitLife-Hawaii.com. I told him I wanted the site to be clean and easy to navigate. It was important to have a balance between professional and casual, and it couldn’t look ‘cookie-cutter’ or like every other health and wellness site out there. He infused my ideas with all the stuff that provides a functional backbone to a website and allows it to serve as your virtual store front (very important that it has functionality behind the scenes, not every web designer cares to put extra work into this aspect of development). If I didn’t like something, he’d modify it. We checked functionality on all devices very thoroughly and he tweaked all custom coding as needed for the site to have flawless presentation across all devices on all browsers. I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about my site from friends, family and most importantly potential clients. I’m a happy customer, I plan on sticking with One Wave.

Years later and I’m still a very happy customer. Paul and the entire One Wave Designs team are awesome. I needed a tweak on my site and it was done at no charge that day. If you have a vision, or even a change in your vision, these guys are on it. I went through a few complete duds before finding One Wave. I won’t use anyone else but them. Thanks guys!

They created my website and I am very please with it. This is the 2nd website that One Wave Designs has done for me. Obviously, I went back because they did an excellent job. I’ve been complement on the design and the colors chosen. Paul recommend the colors because he felt psychological they would attract the clientele and present the right image for me.

One wave Designs has been a GREAT company thus far…. Honest, ( most Importantly to me ) hardworking, attentive to our needs and the communication has been spot on. Our company is ending a long standing relationship with some folks that aren’t as great as Paul and his team.

I look forward to a wonderful business relationship with One Wave. Thank you for everything.

One WaveDesigns has now helped me with two websites. My goal in each was to have high SEO rankings so that my web pages appeared very high in search results, professional-looking page design, and a good price. I was extremely satisfied with the team’s responsiveness, professionally, and with the results of their work. They did the work on time for the price agreed upon — and their price was great.

I would not hesitate to recommend them for any web site design needs

His professionalism is top of the line meeting his deadlines with outstanding workmanship and he is always available by phone and/or e-mail.

Paul and the One Wave Designs Team are so extremely talented at their craft! Their knowledge, skill and customer service was of the highest quality and a breath of fresh air! Each project I had the pleasure of working on with their help has turned out to be above and beyond what I had expected. I am ecstatic about the results and honored to be able to have had their expertise and guidance. I have had a ton of positive feedback about my website and logo and I owe it all to One Wave Designs!

I recently had a rush job where I needed a logo designed ASAP! I searched on YELP and saw that One Wave Designs had some good ratings (plus they’re fairly near to my home) so I decided to give them a call. I was met with a friendly and courteous voice (Evan) who was very informative, and set up an appointment for me with Paul. Upon arriving at their office, I was impressed with the detailed care that was given to creating my logo so that it might have the right character for my business and its expression to my audience. Paul went out of his way to enable me to meet my deadline, and I’ll be sure to send business his way in the future! Mahalo to Paul and Evan for a pleasant experience for this non-techy!

I initially wanted to get my business up and running quickly so I went for a cheap website solution with a company I won’t name. This backfired completely as I ended up with a lack of customer service and I was not showing up anywhere on Google. I had to scrap the entire original project at a loss and look for another way to get online.
With One Wave Designs I got a complete package of design, hosting and visibility on the search engines that actually resulted in people contacting my business.
Paul and his team were very responsive and made sure each of my concerns were addressed with care. It was a pleasure to work with them and I have peace of mind knowing that my site is hosted with these trustworthy folks.

After meeting with 3 different Web Design companies we decided on One Wave Designs. We were looking for someone in Honolulu who could understand our needs and translate them into a design that flowed well across different devices. Paul came in and listened to what our needs and concerns were and gave us a thorough layout of what to expect. His timetable was right on and the end result was what we expected. One Wave Designs came through very professional and I would recommend them without hesitation.

I’m very happy to have hired Paul and his team at One Wave Designs. After being burnt by 3 other local companies I won’t mention, working with One Wave was a breeze. They took the time to listen, made my website exactly how I wanted it, and were always available for helping me make changes.
A big Mahalo to Paul and his team at One Wave Designs, they really helped my business grow.

Out of the four companies we’ve tried to work with, ‘One Wave Designs’ was BY FAR the best value. We first worked with another company, ‘OrangeRoc’, who charged us triple what Paul did and literally delivered a quarter, and with an aggressive attitude. That’s a 12X value with Paul in my eyes. You ask a question about something, you get a healthy answer with many options.

Paul is not only professional and knowledgeable about website designs and online marketing, he sincerely goes the extra mile to accommodate your needs. He also taught us how to change and improve things on our own on the website to save time and costs, whereas other companies were ‘delighted’ to help for a high fee. bottom line – he really cares about our success.

Paul is very friendly and patient, and after working with him and getting to know him, I consider him as a friend.

I don’t know what happened to Biny C. down below, but Paul’s professionalism and promptness with requests are what impressed me most about his service. There’s no doubt, based on all the wonderful reviews, Paul’s one of the best web designers in Hawaii, given his experience, creativity, and passion for his craft. What was a breath of fresh air was Paul’s responsiveness and patience with helping me understand and break down the complexities of the design process.

Additionally, Paul understands WHY he does what he does. It’s not about the money or building notoriety. For him it’s about helping businesses/organizations, big and small, realize their dream in becoming successful. Those are not just words. From when I initially contacted him, to the proposal, throughout the design process, and finally the finished product, I never once lost confidence in where the project was heading. I credit this to not only Paul’s skills as a designer, but also to his ability to transplant himself as a key contributor to the success of my company.

I’m extremely grateful for all the work Paul did (and currently does) to make my site the way that it is now

Odds N Ends Handyman

I had a handyman business that I wanted to grow and step up a notch so I decided to work with Paul and build a website. He was always available and put his best efforts to making my page a professional website. He went above and beyond and helped me get business right off the bat by showing me how to post on Craig’s list and other places and be noticed more than others. My business has grown so quick from working with Paul and we still haven’t hit the top of google yet. Paul’s always working on making sure my page is getting traffic and monitoring everything. His dedication and knowledge of web designs has changed my business tremendously. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a professional webpage that will catch peoples attention and bring you business.

Our firm’s website was performing terribly on google searches and needed a visual overhaul. We reached out to Paul and he impressed us at an initial interview. When his references spoke favorably about his work, we went with him.
He executed the project quickly, and his communication was excellent. Within a week of launching we went from page 3 (or worse) of google organic search results to second. By the end of the month, we were first. Business leads have picked up markedly. We’re very pleased with his work.

A Woman's Voice

I am very fortunate to have found Paul and his company, One Wave Designs! Paul helped me set up the new website from top to bottom, from start to finish. Before, I had an old XTML website — now I have beautifully designed webpages with a clean, modern look. Paul also designed a beautiful background and banner for the website which is really eye-catching. Whenever i would like to do something a little different, I am able to arrange a meeting with Paul — he is a pleasure to meet in person. Paul always understands the issue, the problem, and knows the solution. His expertise in computers is undeniable. He is always on time to meetings .. and you never feel “rushed”. What a rare quality! He is always available for a quick question. Always willing and happy to help. How could you possibly do any better than that? Answer: You can’t. I highly recommend Paul and his company.

Auriga Marketing

Paul and I have now worked together on two websites and I cannot say enough about how great his work is! My husband and I just moved from Honolulu, so on this second website Paul and I worked remotely, and I must say that it went just as smoothly as when we were able to have meetings. The website came out fantastic and I have already had numerous complements on the design. Paul was really able to work with my budget, and for that I am very appreciative. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone in need of website design, SEO or marketing support.

Peter M.

This man is truly amazing! He knows the ins and outs of all there is to the Internet. He took great care in making my site both eye catching and fully functional. I have had a ton of websites that just didn’t produce the hits and right type of hits that would produce sales, but with him, I was able to quit my job and actually have a full-time income selling one simple product! I can’t express how thankful I am for the opportunity to work with him and would highly suggest his services to anyone wanting to get ahead in the Internet market.

Thank you, Peter

To Echo the sentiments of my fiance, Lauren, Paul was an absolute pleasure to work with. He really took the time during the entire process to ensure that we understood everything about our site, and took additional time programming the site so that we will be able to make necessary changes as the site continues to grow.
I cannot say enough about how happy we are with the website Paul created with us, and continues to help us with. He has been extremely patient with us, as we are brand new to website ownership, and have been learning as we go.
He really took the time to make sure that the website worked and looked exactly the way we had envisioned!
Thank you Paul, if we ever have another website we want to create, we know who we’ll be calling!

Columbia SC Real Estate

Paul at One Wave Designs built my very first web site and it jumped to #1 for my keywords in only a few months. My real estate business took off and I sold more homes in a bad market than I previously had in a good market.
The business keeps coming as Paul assists with my SEO. He also keeps my website updated with the latest technology. We have been working together since 2009.
Paul goes above and beyond for his clients. He puts his clients above himself and takes care of their needs first. One Wave Designs builds websites that work: they are beautiful, colorful and most of all they bring traffic which can be converted to leads.

Bobby D.

Paul from One Wave Designs is extremely talented and creative in designing websites…and I do mean “Extremely”. I had no idea where to start with my website design. Paul provided me with professional ideas, creativity, and insight on how websites work. I would highly recommend contacting him if you are considering building a website. One of his theories is that even the best websites are no good if no one can find them. Placing website where they can be found is also an area that he is amazingly good at. I am 100% confident in his knowledge and expertise.

I couldn’t be happier with my decision to use Paul from One Wave designs for my business website. I tried to make a website myself, but quickly realized I was out of my league. I interviewed 5 different people, but none of them made me feel as comfortable and confident as Paul. Fast forward 3 months later, and I know that I made the right choice. My website looks amazing, and I am constantly being complimented by my clients. My Google rankings are getting stronger every day, and we began receiving orders about 2 months ahead of schedule. Anytime I have questions or need an update or a change made, Paul is all over it. Paul knows EXACTLY what he is doing and is truly an EXPERT at his craft. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone who wants a Professional website with SEO. You won’t be disappointed.

After interviewing ten different web design/SEO companies locally and on the mainland I decided to go with One Wave Designs. Paul really seemed to be the most knowledgeable in all areas, and he spent a LOT of time talking to me and going over ideas and options before I ever decided to hire him. He now has produced a BEAUTIFUL web site and is starting the SEO of it now. And after only a week my web traffic has already greatly improved! I would definitely recommend One Wave Designs to anyone!

One Wave Designs designed and currently runs our Real Estate website, and I can not say better things about them. After they took over our site, our traffic has sky rocketed and a lot of our customers have commented on how much they love our site and how easy it is to use. Paul is always on top of things for us, which allows us to focus on our business and not worry about our site. – Rob Good / Coastal Carolina Team / Wilmington NC

Hawaii Camera Rental

I met Paul at One Wave while starting a new retail concept in Honolulu and was just getting started on a new website, which I had built myself. I was no where to be found in Google and was paying a ton of cash for Google Adwords.

After talking to Paul and seeing his other projects, I decided to work with him on a redesign of the site and search engine optimization for the new site. Paul not only developed a kick ass site but also helped me spend way less on Google Adwords while getting my new site on the first page of Google within 2 months and in the top spot for most related, local keywords in about 5 months.

How about results? On a nationwide search basis my site has come up on the first page of Google, way ahead of most of my competitors. Organic traffic has increased on average 25% month-over-month and I am now receiving 4500 unique hits per month.

Paul even helped me write the copy and even convinced me to start a blog.

So, I can say that Paul has worked extremely hard to ensure my business is a success and the colleagues I’ve referred him to echo a similar tone.

Paul’s tenacious work ethic will get the job done right and his willingness to share knowledge made the investment in his Hawaii web design services and SEO work a very easy decision.

One Wave Designs is Highly recommended

Great company and Paul is a pleasure to deal with. Their web designs are very creative, diverse, and Paul really knows how to increase traffic and business to your site. I highly recommend this business as his websites speak for themselves.

I’m so grateful to have found Paul and his company One Wave Designs. I wanted to start a new business, but had no experience on how to get customers. Plus English is my second language, and Paul was very patient to understand what I wanted and helped me understand that I to build a website for my customer’s tastes and demographics.
It was also nice to have my own input on the design. It’s been six months since we launched my new website and I can honestly say I get phone calls and email requests seven days a week. At the beginning Paul helped me setup some ads for Google Adwords (i think that it;s also called PPC),but now my website is naturally at the top of all my search terms so I am don’t have to spend money on Adwords anymore unless I want to. I can’t say thank enough to have found someone who was patient with my english, took the time to understand my business, and now I have custumers asking

Squatch On The Rocks
I hired One Wave to help me rebuild my website, squatchontherocks.com and I am soooo happy I did. Since my business is based on the mainland, but I live in Hawaii, I needed someone who I felt really comfortable with and someone who truly understands how to build an online shopping cart website.

My previous web guy disappeared on me, and I had no idea how to get into my website or make changes. It was outdated and I needed to do a new design anyway. I found One Wave Designs in a Google search and checked out their portfolio and was impressed with their work.

Paul, Evan and the rest of the team were very, very quick to respond. We did an interview at their office (very, very cool inside!) and Paul took the time to explain all of the details of the job, asked a lot of questions I never thought about and really took the time to understand my needs and my business model.

His graphic designer Amanda and Paul came up with a really great design layout and we worked together to make some changes before they build my new website. I never had a web designer take the time to actually create a custom website for me and it was actually a very fun process. One Wave came up with a beautiful layout and then had it up and running in just a few weeks! I couldn’t be happier!

My new website is beautiful and all of my customers tell me how much they love the new website. Before I hired One Wave, I was not showing up in Google. But after a few weeks, the website that One Wave did for me was already showing up on Page 1 in Google and is still moving up.

Paul and his whole team were very easy to work with. They were always fast to respond, professional and friendly and very, very quick on getting their work done. Thank you Paul, Evan, Amanda, Anna and everyone else at One Wave Designs!! I love my new website and my customers do too!
